Yopur Daveness:

Quite apart from being a superb humourist and writer, it is clear that you recognize the important things in life.

The fact that you kept that delightful poster from your daughter demonstrates that. I too, have similar artwork from when my children were little. Frankly, I would not trade them for a Picasso...these are precious things and memories that we cherish.

For me, it has been a tough year...having some health scares, but more importantly losing two of the finest young men I have ever met, both Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan, two kids that were as close to my own sons as I could possibly imagine.

And I think of the incredibly brave US, British and Canadian forces in that country who are doing the heavy lifting, without being able to spend time with their families at what should be the most joyous time of year, because they have chosen to place the welfare of us ahead of their own.

God bless them all.

OK..I don't want to get maudlin here. Let me just say that Dave and Judi, and all of the special people on this blog, you have collectively made my life a tiny bit better. Thanks for that.

And Merry Christmas, one and all...

Thank you for sharing that, Afkat. God Bless you and yours and may you have the Merriest of Christmas's. I hope all your wishes come true during this New Year. I agree with you. There are many special people on this blog including Dave and Judi who have helped me through 2 difficult back procedures this year and have made me smile and laugh even when it hurt. I also pray our soldiers are safe. I remember a Christmas in 1967 when my dad was in Viet Nam and all we had was a picture of him sitting next to a small, aluminum tree my mom and I sent him. I still have that picture. Tonight I was surrounded by family and will be so again tomorrow. I just looked at all their faces and realized how very blessed I am to have my family and friends. I consider all the bloglits to be my friends also. Even the ones I like to *smack*. Merry Christmas to everyone.

Afkat, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I took a picture tonight that made me think of Sophie. My friends own horse carriages and give rides through the Christmas lights. Tonight, for the first time, I got to drive a carriage! Had to take a picture, and of course most of the photo is a big white horse buttocks, but the Christmas lights that appear just above the horse's ears, are "JOY."

This link to Joy might work better. Now I gotta hit the hay so Santa can do his thing.

Merry Christmas Team Dave. Blessings from Down Under.

Logged on this morning just in the hopes of seeing this. It never gets old. Merry Christmas everyone

Loud, that article is nice.

Nice piece, Loudmouth.

And cool pic, Annie.



Hope you all got everything you wanted.

I can't believe I misspelled "Joy" - time to make the coffee and wake up.

Merry Christmas and peace to all in 2011!

Have joy, everyone!

That's OK Jeff. Glad I hovered. That would have been too much in the morning.

merry chrismukkahzaa everyone. i'll need a nap. have joy!

Got another few inches of snow last night and it left us with a Norman Rockwell Christmas. Hanging on the trees, no wind just a straight down snow that blankets everything.
If you have to choose between being good and being lucky, always take lucky. Lucky for me I stumbled across this blog almost a year ago. I don't spend near as much time worrying about what is going on in the rest of the world and I think I like it better this way. Thanks everyone, and Merry Christmas.

It's a lot smaller and more sedate now that the "kids" are 18 and 22. Overnight the dogs ate one of the presents I was to get. It should come out OK in the end. My son (22) put in the Robot Chicken Christmas episode. Says it's a tradition (watching Santa fall down a chimney cussing a blue streak). Joyous times.

Peter M, that's beautiful! Bravo! It's snowing here in N.C. and I've finally shuffled over 20 people out of my house so now I can have my nap without babies screaming and kids fighting with each other. I'm still trying to figure out what I was on the day I bought everybody a marshmallow gun. I received $$$ and a beautiful antique bowl and pitcher from my youngest daughter. She knows I love antiques. Also some handmade things from my artistic daughter and other good things. I hope every one got exactly what they wanted. Merry Christmas! Jeff, I think Jay was one of the wise men.

Happy holidays to Dave, judi and the underblog.

Merry Christmas and/or whatever appropriate or inappropriate holiday you may be celebrating, o great and snarky blogpersons!!!

My previous post disappeared, so trying again...

Merry Christmas to everyone. They said that we haven't had snow on Christmas since the 1800's in the ATL, but we definitely did in '89. It was my first Christmas away from home as an adult. Maybe it didn't reach Atlanta then, idk, but it did where I live.

You guys and girls always make me smile. I don't always post because I'm not nearly as funny as the rest of you, but I always read.

Love and best wishes.....April

BTW, I'm at work and can't access ANY of your links, so a big Bah Humbug to that! I can't wait to get home and check on the homemade marshmallows. Yummy, but who knew they have to dry for 8 hours? The family had better not touch them.....

Christmas with my family, and "have joy" with Dave. My day is complete. Merry Christmas to all. Please take a moment from your day to remember our servicemen and women serving far from home today.

Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Marshmallow gun? Cool.

I'm still trying to figure this one out. All week the weather gurus were telling us a storm would race across the country, hit the southeast and head north, but would DEFINITELY miss us well offshore.

Suddenly this morning we got an oops - now we're going to get 6-10 inches.

Latest update: as of 6:00 tonight it's been increased to 12-18 inches.

I mean, WTFBBQ?! We're supposed to pay attention to the long-range forecast for what?

Looks like I picked the wrong week to give up drinking.

Jeff - I knew this was gonna be trouble on Wednesday when I saw the weather reports (Paraphrasing, but the idea was...)
"OK - so the computer models show three different possibilities"
(We don't have a CLUE)
"I'm gonna show you the two most likely"
(Because I wanna cover my ass)
"The first has the storm doing this"
(Shows the storm giving the finger to the east coast this weekend with accumulation of aprox. Mt Everest)
"The second does this"
(Moons the coast with about half the accumulation)
"The third one I wont show you because it REALLY isnt likely"
(the storm thumbs its nose at the coast)
"Im Storm Clueless with your Eyewitless Weather"

CoastRaven, you must have been watching our local weather people. They said a light dusting was possible and we now have 3" and counting. This is our first White Chrismas since 1947.

OK - Christmas snow is all sweet and romantic and everything ... Day after Christmas F-in BLIZZARD - notsomuch!! I mean really - Who watches football at HOME?

I've done my good deed. I filled my bird feeders and, I'm going to catch some flack for this, threw some food out for the squirrels. I hate for anything to go hungry. They said we would get a light dusting of snow. We now have about 5 inches on the ground. I think that's more than a dusting and it's still snowing.

You're so kind nc. Francis, patron saint of squirrels and nuts will bless you real good.

NC, as one medical person to another, I'm sure he means at work. We are consistenly blessed with squirrely nuts. Aren't you?

Bless you, cindy... The squirrels seem to find the sunflower seeds I put out for them, even under 3" of snow... Happy Holidays to all who make me laugh!

It was fun reading your comments guys... well belated merry Christmas and Wish you All A Happy New Year...
